How our proprietary Social Risk rating works
Most risk analysis focuses on economic trends, but politics and social dynamics are key drivers of change in Emerging and Frontier Markets. We understand how these harder-to-quantify risks affect a developing nation's business climate and, ultimately, your operations or investments there. And we give you our assessments in short, high-impact reports.
Each quarter we survey panels of in-country experts on a set of 15 social risk factors such as political protests, work stoppages, land disputes, and adverse regulatory changes. By tracking these responses over time, we are able to offer what no other service does: a dashboard view of how social risks are changing in today’s most dynamic markets.
Our forecasting comes from on-the-ground experts
When it comes to Emerging and Frontier Markets, written rules and published data often conflict with actual practice. So we rely on people who are on-the-ground and in-the-know, not analysts writing from afar. Our network of 50 in-country specialists meets regularly with top business and labor leaders, government officials, and activists.
That local intelligence is what our sister publication, The Christian Science Monitor, has been offering general readers for more than a century. Now, we bring daily business intelligence – forward-looking and actionable – to investment managers, chief security officers, international law firms, and others with vital interests overseas.
